( T appear
 necessary 
o inform ruch of the. Laity a
 
are unac<-\uainted v.lth the ufe of th
 l\ltffal t that 
the Pray
rs and portions of Scripture, of which the 
MAs'ì, or Liturgy of the Catholic Church, is compafed, 
are in p
rt unalttrahly the fam.e, and partly differen: 
every day. The fixed and in\ ariable parts are con.. 
tained in what is called the OR DINAR Y OF THE MAS
, 
from pages xv, to xlviii. incluúvely; and the changeable 
or proper parts, (viz. the IN T ROI TS, COL L ÄCTS
 
EPISTLES and LJ.isoNs, GRADUAl s and TRACTS, 
GOSPELS, OrfJ:RTORIE', SE.CRETS, COMMUN10NS 
and POST COMMUNIONS), form the fubfequent cORtents 
of the book. The PROPER PREFACES. nat being iQ 
frequentl)" fubject to change, follow each other in regu. 
lar fucceffion in the 0 R !J 1 N A E Y . 
The EccIefiafiical Ye3r, \vith refpett. to the Sundays 
and Moveable Feafh. commences with the FIRST 
SUNDA'I of ADVENT, and dofes with the LAST after 
PENTE.COST; and with regard to the Festivals of the 
Saints, from the Featt of St, AND R E. w. the. 30th of 
November, to the Eve of the fame Feftival the year 
followiDg, inc1ufively. In order therefore to find OU
 
the PR.OI'FR MASS of the day, look for that day of the 
month in the Calendar, oppoíìtc to which may be fee
 
a reference to the page wherein it is contained; and if 
a Double f110uld fall OOl Sunday, then the Mafs there- 
Ðf takes place of the Mafs of the Sunday, except it be a 
Sunday of the FI RST CLASS, viz. th
 fidt Sunday of 
ADVENT or LENT, or PASSIOz.t, PALM, EASTER., 
\\"HIT, and TRINITY SUNDAYS; and the Sundays of 
the SECOND CLASS, whichcal1notbe fllperfeded, except 
by Doubles of the FlitS'!" CLASS, are the ii iii. and iv. 
ot AnVE.NT, SI.PTUACESIJ-IA, SJl:XAGESIMA, and 
QUJNQuACEslMA,asalfothe ii. iii. and iv. ofLENT-. 
It muil huwever be remarked, that the Carpels for Sun- 
days thus fuptrfeded by Doubles are never omitted, but

day, by its propfr COLLECT t SECR.ET, and POST- 
COM!\ftJ N ION, is alW3}IS made itnmediately after the Col.. 
JeD, &.c. of the Fdìival. 
But as it fometimes happens that a Double is trans- 
ferred to a future vacant day, on account of the Oélave 
of fome fdlival of higher rank intervening, the diffi- 
culty'of finding fuch tranferrt:d fefiival may be eafily 
relnoved by confulting the Laity's Diroctory, publifhed 
annual1y, as a guide to the morning, as well as the even- 
ing fervice of the Church. 

s references 
re frequently made to the COlo11mon . of 
SaInts, con1.menclng at p. 459, from the Proper, begIn- 
ning with p. 521, and continuing in regu1ar progreffio1.1 
through the feveral months to the end of the EccIefiafii- 
cal Y car: the leader will find the l\faffes in the former 
defignatcd by nun1erical 1ette.{s, from No. I. to XXI. 
indufive1y; it is therefore to be obferved, that on what- 
ever day of the month these nUll'lerical references ap- 
pear in the General Index, it denotes that the Mafs 
thereof, having no peculiar proper parts aßìgned it, is 
taken entirely from the Comnloll Mafs referred to, but 
fuduld an exception occur it is Hated in a par
nthefis. 
Commelnorations 
re made by the addition of a 
COLLECT, SEC.uET and POSTCOMMUNI0N, to thofe 
that are proper to the feall of the day. When therefore 
th
 word COLLECT, with an' &c. annexed thereto, 
app
ars in the Rubrics, it denotes that its Secret and 
FoHcommunion ale al[o comprehended. 
The EpirLles, LefIons, and Gofpels, are extraB:ed from 
the received approved Catholic Verfion of the Holy 
Scriptures, by the Englifh Colleges of Rhemes and 
Douay, as revifed by the Right Rev. and Ven. Dr. 
Richald Challoner. of learned and pious menlory.

T HS Chl:fCh employs the fOUf weeks that precec1e 
Chrijbnas in preparing the faithful for that great fo... 
1en1nity i hence the beginning of the eccleCiafiical year is 
called Advent, from the Latin word Adventlls, which figni- 
fies the coming, viz. of J efus Chrií1:. Our firfl pftrents, foollt 
after their fall, were comforted with the prediction of this 
great event, when God aíTured thctn that the time would 
come when "the feed of the woman fhould cru(h the 
" head of the ferpent." This promife was renewed to 
Abraham, confirmed to Ifaac, determined to the tribe of 
Juda, fixed in the houfe of David i and lafilYt the tilne 
of its perfeB: accomplifhment 'vas exactly calculated by 
t he prophet Daniel.

received you to the honour of God. For I say that 
Jesus was minister of the circumcision for the truth 
ofGòd, to confirm the promises made to the Fatht"rs. 
But that the Gentiles are to ghnify God for his mer.. 
cy, as it is \vriUen: ... rrherefore I will confess to 
thee, 0 Lord, among the Gentiles, and will sing to 
thy name." And again: the same prophet saith: 
" Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. It ...o\nd

him.all ye people!' And again Isaiah saith: "'fhere 
shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shaH rise up to

stood, and your sheaves stánding about bo,,'ed

Shalt thou be our king? or shaH 
1e be subject 
to thy dominion? 1
ht>refore this matter of his 
òreams and words ministered nourishment to tllCÙ. 
envy and hatred. He dreamed also another dream, 
'\\?hich he told his, brethren, saying: 1 saw in a . 
llrean1, as it were the sun, and the lnoon, and ele. 
ven stars, \\'orshipping me. And when he had told 
this to his father, al1d brethren, his father rebuked 
]lÌlTI, and said: \V hat meaneth this drean1 that thou 
hast dreamed? shall I and thy mother, and thy bre- 
thren, \vorship thee upon the earth? I-lis brethren 
therefore envied hi (TI: but his father considered the 
thing with himself. And \vhen his brethren abode 
jn Sichen1t feeùin
 their father's flocks, Israel said 
to hirn: Thy brethren feed thy sheep in Sichem : 
con1e, I \yiH send thee to them. And \vhen he an- 
swered: I am ready: he said to hinl: Go, éìod see

the field, and asked him what he sought. But he 
ans\vered: I seek my brethren: tell 1l1e where they 
feed their flocks. ^ nò the man said tö hin1: rrhey 
are departed from this place: for I heald them say: 
let us go to Dothain. And Joseph went for".ard 
after his brethren, and found theM in Dothain. And 
when they sa\v hint afar o if, before he came nigh 
thenl, they thought to kin hiln: and said one to 
another, Behold the dreatner cOlneth, come let us

round about it, and dug in it a \vine-press, and 
built a to\ver, and let it out to husbandn1en: 
and went into a strange country. And \vhen the 
time of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to 
the husbandmen, that they D1ight receive the fruits 
of it. And the husbandmen laid hands on his sere, 
vants, and beat one, anc;l kI1led another, and stoned 
another. Again he sent other servants more than the 
former: and they did to them in like manner. And last 
of all he sent them his Soo, saying: They YlÌll reve-

the Son, they said an10ng then1selves: This is the

out of the vineyard, and killed him. \Vhen the

he do to those husbandmen? They say to hinl: !-Ie 
will bring those evil ß1cn to an evil end: and \\,ill

they 'were inflalued \\ itl.1lust to\\'3rds h
r: and they 
perverted their own mInd, and turned away their 
eyes, that they nlight not look unto heaven, nor 
remember just judgments. So they 'were both 
. \vounded \\7ith the love of her, yet they did not 
make kno\vn their gri
f one to the other; for they 
\vere ashamed to declare to one another their lust, 
being desirous to have to do with her: and they 
· \vatched carefully every day to see ber. And one 
said to the other; Let us now go hon1e, for it is din.

And there was nobody there, but the 1\\"0 old ßlen 
that had hid themselves and ,,:ere considering her. 
She said to the maids: Bring me oil, and \\'ash.

and they shut the doors of the orchard, and \vent 
out by a back door to fttch \vhat she had c.Jrn-

were hid within. Now \\'hen the ß1aids "'ere gone

said: Behold the doors of the orchard are shut,

Susauua sighed, and said: I aÓ1 straitened on every

and if I do it not, I shall not escape your hands. 
But it is better for Ine to fall into your hands with.

\Vith that Susanna cricd out with a loud voice; and 
the elders also cried out against her. ..t\nd one of 
then1 ran to the door of the orchard, and opened 
it. So when the servants of the house heard the 
cry in the orchard, they rushed in by the back door, 
to see what was the n1attcr. But atier the old Inen 
had spoken, the servants were greatly ashamed, for 
never had there been any such word said of Susanna. 
.l\nd on the next day, when the people ,,-'ere come 
to Joakim her husband, the two elders also came. 
fu 11 of their wicked dtvice against Susanna, to put 
her to deato. j\nd they said before the people: 
Send to Susanna, daughter of Hclcias, the wife of 
Joakilu. And they prèsently sent. And she came 
with her parents, and children, and all-her kindred. 
Now Susanna was exceeding delicate, and beautiful 
to behold. But those wicked filcn cOlnmanded that 
her face should be uncovered (for she was covered) 
that so at least they luight be satisfied \vith her 
beauty. 1'herefore her friends and all her acquain. 
tance wept. But the two elders, rising up in the 
n1idst of the people, laid their hands upon her head. 
And she weeping looked up to heaven, for her heart 
had confidence in the Lord. And the elders said: 
As we walked ill the orchard alone, this WOn1al1 
can1e in with two maids, and shut the doors of the 
orchard, and 

nt a\vay the maids from her. l'hel1 
a young J11an that was there hid, caIne to her, and

DAY IN LENT. 
I N the 
fass of this day, the Church feems to forget t"'iC 
sentiments of penance with which she hath been occu- 
pied from the beginning of Lent. The reason whereof is, 
that formerly such as ",,'ere to receive baptism at Eas- 
ter, were enregistcred, after having been examined this 
week. 5he also saw the time now approaching for the

reconciliation of the penitents, whom she had subj
cteJ to 
public penance on Ash-Wednc1ëtay. The future birth, 
therefore, of those who were judged worthy of the grace 
of baptism; and the resurrection to a new life of several of 
ber children, who after having gone astray, :return to 
God by a sincere conversion, is this day, the subject gf 
her joy..

Judas, one of the t,,'elve, went before them, ant.!

lJim: J udas, dos
 thou betray the SOil of 1\lan with 
a kiss? And they that were about hinl, seeing what 
",,'ouId foHow, said to him: Lord, shall we strike 
\\7ith the sword? And one of them struck the servant 
of the high- priest, and cut off his right ear. But Je. 
J}us ans
:ering, said: Suffer yc thus far. And \vhen 
lie had touched his ear, he healed him. And Jesus 
said to the chief priests and nlagistates of the temple, 
and the ancients that were con1e to him: Are you 
come out, as it \vere ag
inst a thief, with s\vords 
and clubs? When I was daily with you in the tem- 
ple, you did not stretch forth your hands against me: 
but this is your hour, and the power of darkness. 
Then they laid hold on him, anrlled him to the 
Jligh priest's house: but Peter follov/ed afar off. 
And \vhen they had kindled a flre in the n1idst of 
the halJ, and were sitting about it, Peter was in the 
midst of them. And when a certain servant maid 
had seen him sitting at the light, and had earnestly 
]ooked upon him, she said: This man was also ,,'ith 
him. But he denied, saying : Woman) ( know him 
not. And after a little while, another seeing him, 
said: Thou also art one of them. But Peter said: 
o man, I am not. And about the space of one 
hour after, another nlan affirmed, saying: Of a 
truth this man was also with hiln; for he is also a 
Galilean. And Petel said: 1\lan, I kno\v not \vhat 
thou sayest. And immediately \vhile he \vas yet 
speaking, the cock crc\v. And the Lør@ turnIng 
100ked on Peter. And Peter remembered the \\-'ord 
of the Lord how he had 
aid: Before the cock cro",., 
thou sha1t deny me thrice. And Peter ,vent out and 
wept bitter1y. And the men that held hiln. mocked 
bim, and struck hiln. And they blindfolded him. 
and smote him on the face. And they asked hilD,

saying: Prophesy, \vho is it that struck thee? And 
many other things blaspheming they said against 
him. And as soon as it was day, the ancients of the 
people, and the chief priests, and scribes, came to.. 
gether, and they brought him into their council, 
saying. If thou be the Christ, tell us. And he said 
to them: If 1 shaH tell you, you will not believe me; 
and if I shall also ask you, you will not answer me, 
nor let n1e go. But hereafter the Son of ßlan sha(l 
be sitting pn the right hand of the power of God. 
rrhen said they all: Art thou the Son of God? AIí1d 
he said : You say that I am. 1'hen they said: \Vhat 
need we any further testin1ony? For outselves have 
heard it from his own mouth. (Chap. xxiii.) And 
the \vhole multitude of them rose up, and led him 
away to Pilate. And they began to accuse hiln, say- 
ing: \Ve have found this man perverting our nation, 
and forbidding to give tribute to Cæsar, and saying 
that he is Christ the King. And Pilate asked hinl. 
saying; Art thou the king of the Je\ì.s? And he an- 
swered and said: Thou say est it. rrhen Pilate said 
to the chief priests and to the n1ultitu
e: 1 find no 
cause in this man. But they ,vere more earnest. 
saying: He stirreth up the people, teaching through.. 
out all Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place. 
And Pilate hearing of Galilee, asked if the man 
were a Galilean? And ,,"hen he understood that 
he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him 
away to I-lerod, ,vho hin1self was also at Jerusa. 
lem in those days. And I-Ierod seeing Jesus was 
very glad, for he was desirous of a long time to see 
bim, because he had heard many things of him; 
and he hoped to see some miracle wrought by him. 
And he questioned him with n1any words. But he 
answered him nothing. And the chief priests and 
the scribes stood by) earnestly accusing him. And 
Herod with his soldiers set him at nought, and 
Inock.ed hilll, putting on him a \vhite garn1ent, and

 him 
forth unto you, that you may know that 1 find no 
cause in him. (Jesus therefore came forth bearing 
the crown of thorns, and the purple garn1ent,) And 
lIe saith to them: Behold the man. \Vhen the chief 
priests therefore and the officers had seen him, they 
cried out. saying: Crucify hiro, crucify hiol. Pilate 
saith to them: Take him you, and crucify him: for 
I find no cause in him. The Jews ans\vered him: 
We have a law; and according to that la\v he ought 
to die, because he made hilnself the Son of God. 
When Pilate therefore had heard this saying, he 
feared the more. And he entered into the hall 
again; and he said to Jesus: \Vhence art thou? 

ut Jesus gave him no ê\ns\ver. Pilate therefore saitb 
to hirn : Speakest thou not to me? kno\vest thou not 
that I have power to c.ruci(y thee, and I have power 
to release thee? Jesus ans\\'ered; Thou shouldst 
not have any power against me, unless it \-vere given 
thee from above. 'fherefore he that hath delivered. 
me to thee, hath the greater sin. And from thence.. 
forth Pilate sought to release him. But the Jews 
cried out, saying: If thou release this man, thou art 
not Cæsar's friend. For whosoever maketh himself 
a king, speaketh against Cæsar. Now when Pilate 
:had heard these words, he brought Jesus forth: and 
sat down in the judgment-seat, in the place that is 
called Lithostrotos, and in the Hebrew Gabbatha. 
Anrl it was the parasceve of the pasch, about the 
sixth hour, and he saith to the Je\vs: Behold your 
king. But they cried out: Away \-vith him, away 
with him, crucify him. Pilate saith to thetn: Shall 
I crucify your king? 'The 
hief priests answereJ: \r e 
have no king but Cæsar 'fhen therefore he de- 
livered hiln to them to be crucified. And th
y took 
Jesus, and led him forth. And beari.ng .his own 
cross he \vent forth to that place which 1S called

crucified, was nigh to the citv: and it was written in 
Hebrew', in Greek, and in Latin. 1'hen the chief 
priests of the Jews said to Pilate: \V rite not, 'fhe

the jC\\'s. Pilate answered: \Vhat I have ,"'ritten, I

III. PROPHECY. Gen. xxii.-In tllOse days; God 
tempted A.braham, and said to him: Abraham, Abra. 
hanl. And he answered: I-Iere I am. He said to him: 
'rake thy only begotten Son Isaao, whom thou lovest, 
and go into the land of vision; and there thou shalt 
offer him for an holocaust upon one of the moun. 
tains which I will shew thee. So Abraham rising 
up in the night, saddled his ass: and took with hirn 
t,vo young nlen, and Isaac his son; and when he · 
nad cut wood for the holocaust, he went his way to 
the place which God had commanded him. And on 
th.e third day, lifting up his eyes, he saYi the place 
'afar off AnJ he said to his young men: Stay you 
here with the ass: I and the boy will go with speed 
as far as yonder, and after we have worshipped, 
\vill return to you. And he took. the wood tor the 
holocaust, and 1aid it upon Isaac his son 
 and he 
himself carried in his hands fire and a sword. AnJ 
as they t\VO \vent on together, Isaac said to his 
a.

thou, son? Behold, saith he, fire and wood;

hant said: God will provide himself a victim for a 
holocaust, my son. So they went on together: 
and they canle to the place which God had she\ved 
him, \\'here he built an altar, and laid the wood in 
orùer upon it: anJ when he had bound Isaac' his 
son, he laid him on the a1tar upon the pile of

the I...ord from heaven ca11ed to binl, saying: Abra. 
ham, Abraham. And he answered: flere I am. 
And he said to him: Lay not thy hand upon the 
boy, neither do thou any thing to 'him: no\v I 
know that thou fearest God, and hast Dot spnred 
tby only begotten son for my sake. Abraham lifted 
tlp his eyes, and saw behind his b
ck a ram amongst 
the briers, sticking fast by the horns, \vhich he took 
and offered for a holocaust instead of his son. And 
he called the nan1e of that place, 'rhe I

ing that they had also seen a vision of angels, who 
said that he is alive. And some of our people went 
to the sepulchre: aDd found it so 3S the \vomen had 
said, but him they found not. r-rhen he said to them: 
o foolish, and slow of heart to be1ieve in aU things 
,vhich the prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ 
to have suffered these things, and so to enter into his 
glory? And beginning at l\Ioses and al) the pro.. 
phets, he expounded to thcln in all the scriptures 
the things that \vere concerning him. And they 
ðre\v nigh to the town ",hither they \vere going: and 
'he made as though he \vou1d go f:îfther. But they 
constrained hin1, saying 
 Stay \vith us, because it 
is to\vards evening, and the day is now far spent. 
l:inò he ,vent in with them. And it came to p[tss. 
\vhilst he ,,'as at table with theIn, he took bread; 
ônd blessed and brake, and gave to them. And 
their eyes were opened, and th ey knew hi m: and 
he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to 
the other: Was not our hearts burning \vithin us" 
\vhi!st he spoke in the way. and opened to us the 
scriptures? And rising up the saIne hour they went 
back to Jerusalem: and they found the eleven ga.

came to pass, that \vhen the multitude pressed upon 
him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake 
of Genesareth. A nd he saw two ships standing by 
the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, 
and \vere \\lashing t
1eir nets. And going up into 
one of the ships that was Simon's, he desired him to 
thrust out a little fron1 the land. And sitting down 
he taught the nlultitudes ont of the sl.1ip. Now when 
he had ceased to speak, he,said to Simon: T.Jaunch 
out into the deep, and let down your nets for a 
draught. And Simon ans\vering, said to him: l\Ias- 
, ter, we have laboured all the night, and have taken 
nothing: but at thy word I will let down the net. 
And \vhen they had dO
le this, they enclosed a very 
great multitude of fishes, and their net broke. And 
they beckoned to their partners that \\'ere in the 
other ship, that they should come and help them. 
And they came and filled both the ships, so that

the other: or he will ho1d to the one, and despise 
the other. You cannot serve God and mamn10n. 
rrherefore I say to YOll, be not solicitous for your 
life, what you shall eat, nor for your body, what 
you shall put on. Is not the life more than the 
Ine1\t, and the body more than the rain1ent? Beho1d 
the biròs of the air, for thev neither so\v, nor do 
they reap, nQr gather into barns: ye't your heavenly 
Father fcedeth them. Are not yon of much more

thqught, can add to his stature one cubit? And for 
raiment why are yon so!icitous? Consider th

'V HA TEVE,R objections human policy may urge 
against the stale of virginity, it is nevertheless per- 
fectI y agreeable to the christian system. An incarnate 
Cod recommends it by word and example :-5t. Paul be. 
stows the greatest encomiums on it i-and in every age, 
those who preserved their virginity were always esteemed 
the noblest portion of the flòck of Christ. On the festivals 
therefore of these ilIu
trious spouses of the Son of God, let 
us beseech him to grant the grace of perseverance to an 
such as by vow have voluntarily consecrated themselves to 
his service in that perfect state, as well as for that PUJ ity of 
soul, which is fjjelltiafty necessary tor It:try Ollt, since 
without it, no one can fee God.

the resurrecÜon. (For if he had not hoped that 
they that were slain shou id ri!)e again, it would 
nave seelned superfluous and vain to pray for the

every year on the aJlflivlrjary of the j\1artJrs in the 
churches or chapels usually erected to their memory in the 
saIne place where the whole, or some sacred. remain: of 
their bodies had been buried, and 
-5 their tombs served 
for an alt,lr, so it has ever since been the custom to put tßc 
relicJ of some Saint in, or btneath altar jlontJ. The MAIS 
was not offered to the MA R T Y R, but to the GOD of M A R-

weU for the strength and courage wherewith he had åni- 
Jnated them, as for that state of bliss to which he has 
admitted them. Such was the origin of the fe
